Renée Kathleen Zellweger was born on April 15, 1969, in Katy, Texas, from where she began her successful venture into acting by appearing in several low-budget films. A role in ABC's Murder in the Heartland worked as a stepping stone into the mainstream industry, where she broke into in 1996 with the comedy-drama Jerry Maguire.

Zellweger's iconic titular role in the 2001 romantic comedy Bridget Jones' Diary, which grossed $282 million, endowed her nominations in Academy, BAFTA, and a hefty paycheck of $3.75 million. Zellweger later reprised the beloved role in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and was reportedly paid a whopping $11 million.
Renée became a consecutively Oscar-nominated actress after starring in the six Academy Awards-winning film Chicago in 2003. A year later, Zellweger took home her first Oscar in the best-supporting actress category for Cold Mountain. She was reportedly paid $30 million for headlining Chicago, Cold Mountain, and Cinderella Man. At her career's peak in the early 2000s, Zellweger was raking an estimated $15 million per movie, which rightly catapulted her on the Forbes' The Richest 20 Women In Entertainment in 2007.

Zellweger's career started a hint of decline after the release of Leatherheads in 2008. The movie grossed only $41.8 million against a budget of $58 million and earned Renée her first mixed reviews in a while. The Texas-born actress experienced a few more box office duds with New in Town, My One and Only, Case 39, after which she announced her hiatus from acting. The actress cited an unbalanced lifestyle as the reason behind the decision. "I wasn't taking care of myself. I was the last thing on my list of priorities," said Renée while looking back on her six-year-long break.
